Abstract

The rise of a transitions discourse in Dutch environmental policy is analysed. This new
approach to environmental policy seeks radically more sustainable socio-technical systems. As such, its agenda constitutes the latest twist in attempts at ecological
modernisation, aiming to decouple economic growth from harmful environmental degradation. The coalescence and influence of a transitions discourse coalition, which
has helped shape national environmental policy planning in recent years, is contextualised and analysed. Its limited success in institutionalising procedures for
structural change in the energy domain suggests ecological modernisation remains elusive.
